"....God damn it"

Jerry's response to "Roberto" suggesting that the band play El Paso. They settle on Black Throated Wind. Check out the banter that is track 7 of this new GEMS transfer of one of those crappy shows from August '72.

Thank you for this!

I just finished an 9 hour bus ride and listened to a matrix of 3-31-83 at Warfield Theater and the second set of 10-21-73.

While enjoyable, the energy of those 3 sets just didn't match the feeling of the few songs I've checked out from this show (Bird Song, Black-Throated Wind, Deal, El Paso). Maybe it's the wonderful mix, or the lack of a droning Greyhound bus, or my first toke since Wednesday, but this stuff is HOT!

The banter really shows how much fun the band is having - and it reflects very much in the music. The depth of the sound in '72-'74 is unmatched in other years - whether it's that the technology had caught up with what the band was doing, the absence of Mickey, the addition of Keith, the jazz-ification of new and old songs, but this sounds AMAZING.

edit: There are some excellent (for the time recordings from) '65-'68. '69 shows a marked improvement in quality of SB's with increasing clarity and instrument separation - especially those shows from the Fillmore West box set. There are definitely some very nice boards from 1970 as well - but there's not as many of them as from the later years. Of course, like most of you, I treasure anything and everything from the early years as long as it's listenable (like 4-15-69 which is only available in a rough AUD but contains one of my favorite Dark Stars). '71 is a cool transition year and those Port Chester shows are really something - and I enjoy Harding Theater in November as well.

p.s. I'm well into Playin' and the jam moves unfolds beautifully - intense and moving in and out of many tonalities.
